The round was rather attractive and full of interesting results. The round ended with derby games and even winless team recording their first victory.

The biggest surprise of round 7 in Superleague was guest Energy Invest's (6-1) road victory over their biggest opponent Kutaisi (5-2) 67-60 on Friday evening. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Kutaisi. It was a key game for the second position in the league. The guests trailed by 4 points after three quarters before their 23-12 charge, which allowed them to win the game. Energy Invest outrebounded Kutaisi 43-30 including 28 on the defensive glass. American guard Nate Bowie (183-G-86, college: Cent.Arkansas) fired 19 points and 5 rebounds for the winners. His fellow American import forward Kyle Nelson (203-89, college: Augustana, IL, agency: N.E.T.) chipped in 12 points and 9 rebounds. Azerbaijani guard Zaur Pashayev (188-83) produced 16 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists for lost side. Energy Invest have a solid series of three victories in a row. They moved-up to second place. Kutaisi at the other side dropped to the fifth position with two games lost. Energy Invest are looking forward to face Armia (#3) in Tbilisi in the next round, which may be the game of the day. Kutaisi will have a break next round.
Another exciting game was a derby match between two teams from Tbilisi: Armia (#4) and TSU (#7). TSU was crushed at home by 29 points 65-94 and even the advantage of their own court did not help. Worth to mention a great performance of the former international Zviad Babiashvili (200-78) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 14 points, 11 rebounds and 4 assists. Lasha Parghalava contributed with 11 points and 6 rebounds for the winners. Center Davit Khizanishvili (202-87) answered with a double-double by scoring 14 points and 10 rebounds for TSU. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Defending champion (5-1) moved-up to third place, which they share with Olimpi. TSU at the other side keeps the seventh position with five games lost. They share it with Batumi. Armia will play against league's second-placed Energy Invest in Rustavi in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. TSU's supporters look forward to another derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Tbilisi Samedicino-Academia.
Another exciting game was again a derby between two local teams from Tbilisi: Olimpi (#5) and Dinamo Tbilisi (#6). Dinamo Tbilisi was defeated at home 79-84 and even the fact of playing on their own court did not help. It was a great evening for Stevan Milosevic who led his team to a victory scoring 11 points and 9 rebounds. Olimpi's coach George Kazanjian used an eleven-player rotation in such tough game. At the losing side Ioseb Lezhava responded with a double-double by scoring 16 points, 7 rebounds and 10 assists. Olimpi (5-1) moved-up to third place, which they share with Armia. Loser Dinamo Tbilisi keeps the sixth position with three games lost. Olimpi's supporters look forward to another derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Tbilisi to the arena MIA.
Sokhumi can celebrate finally their first win this season after five consecutive loses. The victory is especially important as it came on the road game in Tbilisi, where they defeated STU (0-6) 86-75. It was an exceptional evening for Vakhtang Kadaria who led the winners with a double-double by scoring 19 points, 13 rebounds and 4 blocks. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Sokhumi maintains ninth place with 1-5 record. It was STU's sixth loss in a row. They still closes the standings with six games lost. Sokhumi's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Tbilisi to the arena Dinamo Tbilisi.
Bottom-ranked Samedicino-Academia (0-6) tried to put together a comeback for its first victory of the season, but they fell short in the 82-73 loss to eighth ranked Batumi (2-5) in Batumi on Friday evening. Lasha Keshelava fired a double-double by scoring 21 points and 13 rebounds for the winners. Samedicino-Academia's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Batumi moved-up to seventh place, which they share with TSU Tbilisi. Loser Samedicino-Academia still closes the standings with six games lost. Batumi will face bottom-ranked STU (#11) in Tbilisi in the next round. Samedicino-Academia's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Tbilisi to the arena TSU.

Sokhumi can celebrate finally their first win this season after five consecutive loses. The victory is especially important as it came on the road game in Tbilisi, where they defeated STU (0-6) 86-75. It looked good early as STU took an 4-point lead at the end of first quarter. But then Sokhumi had a 22-15 second period charge getting the lead and STU was not able to take back game control losing it eventually 75-86. Sokhumi shot 27 for 41 from the free-throw line, while STU only scored seven points from the stripe. They outrebounded STU 54-43 including a 37-20 advantage in defensive rebounds. Sokhumi brought some defensive toughness making 8 blocks. 29 personal fouls committed by STU helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities.

Forward Irakli Chlaidze (199-89) accounted for 24 points for the winning side.
